Estimation of Non-rigid Surface Deformation using Developable Surface Model
There is a strong demand for a method of acquiring a non-rigid shape under deformation with high accuracy and high resolution. However, this is difficult to achieve because of performance limitations in measurement hardware.
We propose a modelbased method for estimating non-rigid deformation of a developable surface. The model is based on geometric characteristics of the surface, which are important in various applications. This method improves the accuracy of surface estimation and planar development from a low-resolution point cloud. Experiments using curved documents showed the effectiveness of the proposed method.
